About this book
A collection of tales of obsession and ambition from Jansson, published in English for the first time. Jansson was best known as the creator of the Moomins, but she also wrote adult novels such as "The Summer Book, A Winter Book" and "The True Deceiver", all of which have been recent successes. With an introduction by Ali Smith, it's translated from the Swedish by Thomas Teal.
An elderly caretaker at a large outdoor exhibition, called Art in Nature, finds that a couple have lingered on to bicker about the value of a picture; he has a surprising suggestion that will resolve both their row and his own ambivalence about the art market.
